After City Council's appeal of the project, the applicant met with Staff and discussed the architecture of the multi-tenant retail building. The applicant submitted revised elevations for the multi-tenant retail building, which was included with the project for Council's consideration. At the May 13, 2008 City Council meeting, the 24-hour operation and the architecture of the project was discussed. Council Member Graham continued to express concern regarding the color scheme, however the City Council approved the project by unanimous vote (5-0) with the following Condition of Approval: "The applicant shall return with final elevations for the retail building to the Planning Commission for final review and approval of aesthetic consideration.
